Toddlers and Finger Injuries

The National Safety Council indicates over 300,000 door injury incidents happen every year in the U.S. These are injuries requiring emergency room or urgent care visits and most are happening to toddlers more than to any other age group.

Sometimes the injuries happen in early learning environments, but many times they happen in the home.  Of all these finger injuries, more than 25,000 of them result in amputations or fractures. 

Use cabinet and drawer locks like these to keep doors from crushing curious and tender fingers.
